Finals: Day 3

Happy Birthday Jilly!

I know it is a little late but....Happy Birthday Jill.
On her birthday we just had to get the biggest, heaviest ,Chocolaty cake in Costco
This beast was 7.0 pounds of chocolate!
We literally had to have pieces 1 inch wide or else that was just too chocolate.

O Christmas Tree

Twas 11 days before Christmas and outside was blowin'
but at the Koontzes', it also was snowing!
As they put up their Christmas tree, all came to help,
and every few minutes, from Jackson, a yelp.

Sam hung the ornaments
And Jillian couldn't help but sneeze,
Just 5 more days till the BYU siblings come home,
And on Christmas morn, Lolo and Lin they will welcome.
The house was beautiful with the wreaths and the lights,
merry christmas to all and to all a few good nights.

Jumpin' Jeepneys!!

A little hesitant and unsure of what to say, Dad sauntered into the cultural hall of the Issaquah 2nd Ward church building with tie cinched and computer in hand. Eva Foster asked him to talk about the church in the Philippines for a ward humanitarian service project. They also collected items such as clothes, toys, and school supplies to go to the Philippines. There were many items collected, the Filipino food was superior, and many heads were positioned in the jeepney windows as the blinding flash captured the moment from the photographer's camera.

Excellent job on the jeepney, Brandon!

Help Wanted

The annual raking of leaves rolled around here at the Koontz residence. With only four lonely people, the work was more tedious and strenuous than usual. The competition of how many piles one can fit in the wheelbarrow, the designs, and the occasional witty remarks kept us entertained. Overall, I guess we had a jolly time.

Mom got tired of raking and brought out the blower.
Can anyone say Red Green?

Mom and Jordan's tired faces

Dad and Jillian's happy faces-we're done!
